Entoloma vernum - Hat diameter 25 to 50 mm. Olive-brown, brown to black-brown in wet weather, fading with radial streaks to a pale gray-brown and silky shimmering when dry.

The shore is rarely grooved.

Lamellae 4 to 5 mm wide, rare. The colors are initially pale gray, later with salmon-pink shade, pinkish-brown, when ripe usually on the blade irregularly ribbed and jagged. Near the stipe, it is adnate, rounded.

Stem 30 to 60 mm long and 3 to 8 mm thick. Often twisted and flattened, fragile. Hue similar to the hat, at the base, felted, white. Naked surface, delicately longitudinally grooved.
